London, ON – Nov 16, 2022 - Paystone, a leading financial technology (FinTech) company, today announced that it was ranked on the Enterprise Fast 15 list, an award category in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ program, Canada’s preeminent technology awards program. In addition, Paystone ranked on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now its 28th year.
Enterprise Fast 15 List
This leadership category recognizes the fastest-growing enterprise-level technology, media, and telecommunications companies via revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation. It is open to companies that recorded a minimum revenue of $10 million in 2018 and a minimum revenue of $25 million in 2021. Paystone achieved a 276% four-year revenue growth rate during that period.
Once a Canadian startup, Paystone has successfully scaled up to the enterprise realm. As Paystone continues to grow and evolve, this achievement solidifies the mission they're on to be the category leaders in Customer Driven Growth.
“We are very humbled by this recognition. What an honour to be named to the Enterprise Fast 15 category. The journey from startup to enterprise has been truly remarkable, but we’re just getting started,” says Tarique Al-Ansari, Founder & CEO of Paystone Inc.
Earlier this year, Paystone also received recognition from The Globe and Mail as one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies, as well as being voted by its employees as a Great Place to Work via the Great Place to Work program.

In addition to the Enterprise Fast 15 distinction, Paystone was selected as a Technology Fast 500 winner for 2022. This category ranks the 500 technology companies in North America that have the highest revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation.
“Growth is the most exciting thing a business can experience and our mission is to help businesses do just that. We’ve embarked on a dual growth strategy both organically and through M&A and we are committed to further scaling our business within North America and beyond,” continues Tarique Al-Ansari, Founder & CEO of Paystone Inc.
